This is the prepared persons creed! What we do, we do with safety in mind. We pack food and clothing AND medicines AND knowledge AND weapons of protection with their safety switches ON. We make like Santa and check it and check it again. Our bug out bags packed, our decision to bug in or retreat made, we prepare for all the things we think the world can throw at us.
Never leave a candle unattended. Turkey fryers should be used outside. Check the wiring of both the lights and the circuits you plug them in to!
Don't forget to prepare for the things we do in the heated rush to get it all done right now. Follow these sights to see more disaster photos and tips.
